    Her fiction is part of her thought process…

    Assuming that she understands the difference between fiction and, ummm… what’s that word again?

    Maybe she thinks her books are about real life.

    The “dead” triceratops that Steven Speilberg posed in front of was real to her…that should tell you something

    They desperately need affirmation that they have picked the right side.

    The true purpose of an academic feminist is to think irrationally as a public service to remind us sane people what going off the deep end really means.

    It must hurt to be unwanted by men. Escaping reality seems to be the go to option.

    Nothing can humiliate a woman more than being physically ugly.

    I don’t think Obama has a Pollyanna foreign policy.

    I think he’s deliberately steering Western Civilization toward the rocks.

    Notice how “puritanical” is how she describes ISIS aS if that is some vIle slander in itself.

    These 7th century troglodytes are a bit more than “puritanical.”

    Feminism consumes 4u times it’s own weight in excess reality….

    Understanding radical liberals, Part 2,348: Their only goal is iconoclasm; the destruction of popular opinion; the devastation of what is.

    There is consensus on the evil of ISIS, so Oates is compelled to suggest that they might be decent human beings after all. She thinks this makes her appear smarter, more intellectually nuanced, than everyone else. All it does it make her an accessory to terrorism.

    Oates, and people like her, are as transparent as the last dress Beyoncé wore to the Grammys.

    He’s doing a great job of ripping the covers off of progressivism. For that, I thank him.

    They’re probably yukking it up raping little girls and who doesn’t love hacking someone’s head off? Remind me never to read any of Oatie’s books
